East Side Aligned


Bringing people and organizations together to ensure all children and youth are ready for success in school, work and life.

Our Approach


East Side Aligned is not an organization or program. It is how we refer to the Collective Impact process happening within the greater East St. Louis area to improve outcomes for young people. 


The process works to align policy, practice and investment across sectors to ensure all children and youth are supported and ready for life.
